In this course, you will learn how to design technologies that bring people joy, rather than frustration. You'll learn several techniques for rapidly prototyping and evaluating multiple interface alternatives -- and why rapid prototyping and comparative evaluation are essential to excellent interaction design. You'll learn how to conduct fieldwork with people to help you get design ideas. How to make paper prototypes and low-fidelity mock-ups that are interactive -- and how to use these designs to get feedback from other stakeholders like your teammates, clients, and users. Armed with these design-thinking strategies, you’ll be able to do more creative human-centered design in any domain.

I totally enjoyed the course. It touches the biggest parts of HCI design process, but don't get illusioned that you'll learn everything about HCI, it's a complex field, it requires respectful time for learning. As for introduction, the course is great, the assignments are pretty challenging and require a lot of work if one wants to get best of the learning process.
